Textiles

Since I couldn't blog a lot while I was away I am going to share a few more photos from my trip before I get back into sewing ...so I hope your not too bored. One of my aims was to investigate the indian weaving and textile history....
Most of these were taken between Williams on route 66, the Grand Canyon and Scottsdale in Arizona.


Found in Scottsdale



Hopi House - Grand Canyon

Hopi House which housed the beautiful work below 






The following beauties were in a museum in Williams 







Mexico also had many different textile products to show mostly weaving and embroidery using very large satin stitches 


 A book cover from our hotel room - just loved it 

Done in large satin stitch with some chain 


Amazing beautiful , bright colours.
